A SEAL team rescues a captive US diplomat from Hamas terrorists amid a fierce gunfight in Lebanon; the PotUS himself asks the SecNav to nominate a lieutenant, the OiC of the platoon, for the Medal of Honor. In Coronado, California, Harm, Mac, and Bud investigate the circumstances and the background; however, they have much trouble in learning anything -- because of the refusal of the lieutenant to talk about the incident due to his personal views and attitudes, and because of the refusal of his men to talk due to their perception of his behavior during the rescue. Eventually, though, Harm finds the pieces of the story and puts them together. Written by DocRushing
